Drawing on experience!
Sunday, August 07, 2022

Hi, I'm Peter King and draughting services is the name under which I produce my drawing work.

A brief history...
After training as a Fabricator/Welder and working for a couple of years for a local steelwork fabrication company, in the workshop fabricating and on site erecting structural steelwork, steel staircases and balustrades, I went into the drawing office to train as a Detail Draughtsman. After three years as part of a small team of draughtsmen and structural engineers I left the company to work as a freelance draughtsman, which is what I have been doing ever since.

In the early days, like most other draughtsmen in the industry, I was producing drawings on a drawing board and in 1990 I got my first CAD system. This was very expensive and very slow and for several years I was producing drawings using a mixture of drawing board and CAD. It almost goes without saying that today all of my work is carried out using CAD for both 2D draughting and 3D modeling.
